Publisher's Summary

Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour
Sir Winston Churchill was a soldier, journalist, writer, Nobel Prize winner and, above all, a leader. Conservative then Liberal then Conservative again, his political instincts won him a sustained career at the summit of British government, while his resolve and politics of personality made him broadly regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century.
With his early radicalism, bold decisions regarding the Gold Standard and Iron curtain analysis, Churchill was, for many, a highly controversial figure. For others, he was Britain's finest Prime Minister.
From his career as a young army officer - serving in British India, The Sudan, and the Second Boer War, in which he won fame as a war correspondent - to his later pursuits as a historian, a writer, and an artist, Churchill: History in an Hour is the perfect guide to the colourful, long and varied life of a historic titan.

Critic Reviews

“If the past is a foreign country, History in an Hour is like a high-class tour operator, offering delightfully enjoyable short breaks in the rich and diverse continent of our shared past.” (Dominic Sandbrook)
“The practice of History is ever-evolving, and the History in an Hour idea brings it back up to date for the digital age. Colley writes in an attractively readable style, and manages to convey the huge story that is WWII in a logical and accessible manner” (Andrew Roberts, Bookseller)
“This is genius” (MacWorld.com)

This is how you can get to know Churchill

It isn’t easy to write about a multi-faceted man like Churchill in a small book. It needs a lot of research to follow up on a life such as Churchill’s. I feel indebted to this book for allowing me to understand and know Churchill as a leader and as a person.
